    Don't Try This At Home
    Fallen Angel
    Funny Face
    Helpless
    Hologram
    International Luv
    Trouble

    And I'll review all of those ones too.

    Reminders in advance, that though my musicial taste is very widely ranged, I'm not the best at getting things down in words. So you'll have to bare with me.


    So, let's go through the main track listing...

    Straight Through My Heart
    The first track to be released as a single from this album, and, I have to say, one of my most favourite tracks. It's so much fun and I was hooked from the first play. And this track alone tells us how much the music has changed for this album.

    Bigger
    This is a really nice up-lifting song. I think it's definatly a grower, but at the moment, it's not a huge stand-out type track for me.

    Bye Bye Love
    I love the bounce of this track, and the lyrics tell a pretty good story. Hehe!!

    All Of Your Life (You Need Love)
    Another of my faves!! And another I love the bounce of!! I love the lyrics too. It does have a real dance feel to it, and if you're not familiar with the Boys and their own styles, it could quite easily be mistaken for just any old club track.

    If I Knew Then
    Even if I didn't love the music in this track, I love the story told in the lyrics. It's a real "think before you act" type thing, reminding us all that "once you do something, it can't be undone". I dunno, maybe it's just me, but alot of songs have always been able to speak to me on deeper levels. And this is one of them. I think it reminds me not to take things for granted, and to say things before it's too late and I regret missing the chance, as well as to think before I say or do something I might regret later.

    This Is Us
    This is another song with a powerful story told in it's lyrics. And it's a story alot of people can relate to. I know I can - from both sides. It tells a story of someone who's been hurt before and doesn't know if they can trust and be with anyone again, and the story of someone wanting a chance to be with that someone and prove that they're different and would never hurt them.

    PDA
    One of my least favourite tracks, I have to admit. I do kinda like the music, coz it's different. But I dislike the lyrics... actually, I think I kinda hate them.

    Masquerade
    Love this one!! It gets you hooked so easily because it's so catchy. Hehe!! It's such a fun song.

    She's A Dream
    Not the most impressive track, I have to say. It's one of the few I listen to least.

    Shattered
    Amazing. I love this song. It's another where the lyrics speak volumes. I think this is a really powerful song that, again, alot of people will be able to relate to.

    Undone
    Another powerful song, lyrics wise. It's a little different to other songs, and the lyrics, as well as the music, seem to match, perfectly, just how complicated and confusing thoughts and feelings can be.


    And now onto the other tracks...

    All In My Head
    I really like this song. It's really interesting. It's one of the tracks I wish had made it onto the main listing.

    Calling Your Name
    I love this song!! I really wish they'd put this on the main listing as well. It's sooo different from anything else I've heard before.

    Don't Try This At Home
    Another track I really like.

    Fallen Angel
    This is another one of my favourite tracks, and I was so surprised and disappointed when I heard it didn't make it onto the main track listing.

    Funny Face
    This song is so cute!! Hehehe!! It makes me giggle!! Hehe!! I love it!!

    Helpless
    I like this track alot, and I've heard it's made it as a bonus track for more countries than most of the other bonus tracks.

    Hologram
    This song's pretty funky, and I like it.

    International Luv
    This is probably my least favourite bonus track. It's kinda catchy, but nothing special.

    Trouble
    I love the music on this track! It has a freaky, Halloween type feel to it. I'm not a fan of some of the lyrics, but, for the most part, I love this track!!


    Overall, it's another amazing, and different, album from the Boys. They never fail to amaze, so if you think you know the Backstreet Boys; think again. I highly recommend this album to everyone.

    I hope the bonus and dropped tracks become more easily avalible though. Maybe as B Sides on singles or something?

    Anyways, it's another awesome achievement for the Boys and I can't wait to see them on tour!! =D
